Larry Lamb has said he would be "thrilled" if his long-lost daughter contacted him after he was voted out of I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!

The ex-EastEnders actor, 69, opened up to fellow contestants about an estranged eldest daughter, Vanessa, who he only met once as a baby.

Lamb separated from Vanessa's mother after the girl was born in 1969 and he has not seen her for more than four decades.

It was later revealed that Vanessa herself had become a mother and Lamb had a granddaughter he was unaware of.

After leaving the jungle, Lamb told the Daily Mirror: "I have to say if my daughter or granddaughter were to contact me, then I, and all my extended family, would be thrilled."

Lamb, who spent 20 days in the Australian jungle, became the sixth contestant to exit the ITV show when he was voted out on Wednesday.
